Marbach is on course for further expansion. In addition to its activities in Mexico, China and the USA, Marbach is expanding its capacities in Poland. After two Polish plants were established in Tarnowskie Góry and Kielce with a total of 175 employees, a new plant in Poznań with 50 employees has been added.
Managing Director of Marbach Poland, Pavol Kunstar: "Together the two Marbach locations in Poland have become a strong pillar of the globally active Marbach Group. The demand for Marbach tools in Poland has steadily increased in recent years. To satisfy demand sustainably the only way was to expand the existing capacities. When the opportunity arose to take over our competitor, Wykrojniki Polskie Sp.Z o.o., we did not hesitate. Especially since the majority of our customers come from the Poznań region. This investment will allow us to increase our production capacity by almost 20%. It will enable us to meet growing demand and to become more flexible. The new location in the west of Poland will enable us to better support our customers on site."
The contract for the transfer was signed on September 2nd. Marbach will take on all employees of Wykrojniki Polskie Sp.Z o.o.. The new location has an area of 1,350 m², of which 950 m² is production space. From this point on the company in Poznań will be managed as a Marbach location. By the end of 2019, Marbach guidelines will be introduced at the new location and production capacity will be expanded. This includes investment in new machines, new software, new structures and employee training. As of 01.01.2020 the entire integration of the new location into the Marbach Group will be completed.
Marbach Die Supplies includes in its portfolio a very special hand tool for simple and fast insertion of waste nicks into cutting rules: the marbanick|2+. This is the follow-on development of the long-standing and time-proven marbanick and marbanick|2.
Marbach has been participating in the world's largest exhibition for the packaging industry, drupa, since 1977. At the upcoming drupa in 2 weeks, from April 20-23, Marbach will again be represented with a booth - but this time virtually. Because of the Corona pandemic, this year's exhibition will take place exclusively online. On the 4 days of the fair, however, everything will center on packaging online.
Marbach Die Supplies has the right solution for every requirement in its portfolio. In the counter plate sector, Marbach offers a comprehensive portfolio of materials for diemakers. From simple creasing matrixes to cutting plates for the production of steel counter plates. However, the top seller in counter materials has remained the same for years: rillma+. But what makes this material so popular?
Marbach is repositioning itself for the future. The company with its more than 20 locations worldwide, has evaluated its position during a one-year-long strategy project. The results are impressive: a new sales structure, the introduction of "Production Centers of Excellence" and new industry management reorganization for the most important target markets: folding carton and corrugated board.
